Original Z Couture Jewelry

Finding gifts for my mom can be challenging, because she has great taste and prefers to wear quality products. Luckily, a friend of mine makes beautiful jewelry that my mom loves — and it’s within my budget!

Z Couture Custom Handmade Jewelry started about 10 years ago making wine charms in Cherokee County. After visiting a bead shop, Terri Zahorodny was inspired by the beautiful crystals and beads. A love of anything sparkly, shiny and blingy, she decided to try and make bracelets with them. Through trial and error, she taught herself the art of jewelry making.

Her use of beads and stones are a mixture of shapes, colors, and sizes. She is always on the hunt for unique and exceptional beads that make each piece of her jewelry a statement. The way she combines crystals, gem stones, beads, pearls, and chains in a classy and fashionable way makes it hard to decide on just one!


“The looks that most define my work are the multi-dangles that I put on most all bracelets, along with my Z charm. Everyone loves that,” she says.

Terri uses high quality natural gem stones, sterling and Bali silver, with Swarovski Crystals and Swarovski Pearls. She also occasionally uses Austrian or Chinese crystals, glass, clay or resin beads, and coated base metals to make a more affordable line. Terri Z will work within your budget to create an original piece, or she’ll try to duplicate a piece you love but can’t afford.

Her best sellers involve anything with turquoise. Stretchy charms in different colors are popular because they can be done in school or team colors. Lately, the Honesty Cross Bracelet is a huge hit, which features a cross mixed with beads.

So if you need a gift for your mom, a friend, yourself, or if you need pieces for a wedding or some bridesmaids gifts, check out Terri Z’s original work. She accepts credit cards and ships anywhere.
